NBS/NIST Special Publications

The NBS/NIST Special Publication series, first published as the NBS Miscellaneous Publication series, is comprised of material that, because of its character or size, does not fit into any of the other regular publication series. The Miscellaneous Publications series was published from 1918-1967, and in 1968 the series title was changed to Special Publications. It includes pamphlets, directories of specifications, proceedings of conferences sponsored by NIST, NIST annual reports, and other special publications appropriate to this grouping such as wall charts, pocket cards, and bibliographies.

This book is an elementary introduction to the laws of measurements. But the approach is not an abstract discussion of measurements, instead it depends upon getting you to make measurements and, by observing collections of measurements, to discover for yourself some of the properties of measurements. The idea is to learn something about measurement that will be useful-no matter what is being measured. Some hint is given of the devices that scientists and measurements specialists use to get more out of the available equipment. Understanding something about the laws of measurements, a person may be able to get the answers to your own research problems with half the usual amount of work. No young scientist can afford to pass up a topic that may double his scientific achievements. 2

A list of references is provided for published papers and reports containing rate constants or mechanisms for the oxidation of S(IV) by oxygen in aqueous solution, with or without catalysts. Three hundred and twenty papers are listed, the period covered extending from 1897 to 1981. 1
A regional seminar sponsored by the Korea Standards Research Institute, the National Bureau of Standards, and the U.S. Agency for International Development was held at the new K-SRI Laboratories at Daeduk near Dae Jeon in the Republic of Korea on September 27-28, 1978. The participants representing most of the countries in the South Asian and Western Pacific Region discussed the importance of providing services in measurement science and technology (metrology) to governmental and industrial organizations in the region. The consensus was that a need for a central national capability in metrology existed in countries at all levels of development, and that that central organization could be a focal point for intra- and international cooperation, which alone could lead to compatibility of measurements, a prerequisite for quality control for all kinds of products in domestic and international markets. Australia and New Zealand had established a group of accredited test laboratories to disseminate the accuracies inherent in the national measurement system. Industry was increasingly aware that metrology was essential to development, but the specific needs at appropriate accuracies needed to be established by surveys. The Korean Government strongly supported the establishment of metrological services as is well illustrated by the new K-SRI laboratories. 1
A workshop on possible contributions of cement and concrete technology to energy conservation by the year 2000 was held at the National Bureau of Standards on October 3 and 4, 1977. The purpose of the workshop was to identify and record ideas on possible contributions of cement and concrete technology to energy conservation in the near term and by the year 2000. This included consideration of current technology as well as areas in which technological advances might be realized. The workshop was divided into working groups on cement composition, cement production, blending materials, concrete production, efficient use of concrete, and institutional factors. The essential results from the six working groups were statements of Energy-Saving Opportunities, Research Needs, and Unresolved Issues. The statements, which are the major part of this report, are presented without critical analysis. They suggest, however, that there are a large number of possible opportunities which should be evaluated for their ability to contribute to energy conservation in the cement and concrete industries. 1
ASTM and NBS co-sponsored a Basestock Consistency Study (BCS) to assess the quality consistency of lubricating base oils. This study, which is the first of its kind, will impact on developing basestock characterization methodology and on efficient utilization of energy resources as well as their conservation through recycling. The purpose of this publication is to present the ASTM/NBS BCS data for data analysis. Monthly production samples from six re-refiners and four refiners were analyzed by 14 laboratories for a 13 month period. The results of over 55 tests are divided according to six major categories: rheology, physical properties, chemical properties, hydrocarbon type analysis, general performance tests, and oxidation and wear bench tests. The data are presented in tabular and grphical form, which is quite amenable to further data analysis. 1

An account of the initial U.S. concerns with, and subsequent efforts to cope with, the safe use of ionizing radiation A is given. National interest was focused in the National Bureau of Standards where radiation programs were established at the urging of, 1
An international workshop on the backfill A component of a multi-barrier under-ground isolation system for nuclear waste disposal/storage was conducted on April 13 and 14, 1981, at the National Bureau of Standards, Washington, DC. This report includes the papers presented and/or submitted to the workshop for publication. It also contains the surveyed results of a questionnaire distributed to the participants at the workshop. The workshop held a one-day informal indepth discussion on the subject and a summary of these discussions is included in this report, which states areas where further research and development needs are required to better understand the fundamental mechanisms of the backfill in the waste repository. 1
An introduction to the Transmittance Measurement Assurance Program (MAP) service is given. Documentation for the service is provided through a comprehensive list of references. The results of a pilot run for the MAP service are given in a sample calibration report. 1

Assurance of measurement quality to meet requirements for regulatory agencies, marketplace equity, and productivity and quality control in manufacturing and research is challenged by unprecedented demands for sensitivity, speed, precision, and accuracy over wide ranges of properties and signal characteristics. New approaches are needed. Examples of NBS response, principally in electrical and electronic engineering are described. 1
